Thanks for the tip on another source for ammo. I also use the app AmmoSeek on my iphone or ipad. It will find the lowest price on ammo with the brands and specifications you are looking for.

For example AmmoSeek found the 40-65 WCF rounds at Selway Armory for $38.99 /20. Lowest price I have seen for this caliber.

I took your suggestion and went to Buffalo Arms.  Had a nice back and forth with Brandon and bought 20 rounds of 50/70.  Yes, pricey but at least they had the loading that I wanted.  Shipping from Idaho was a killer at $21+ but 20 rounds (about $4 per) will last me a lifetime with this old girl.



Not 154 years old like the Springfield, but this .22 Stevens model 10 turns 100 this year. Celebrated by shooting it today. Came from an old trapper in Maine that used it for years and made the holster.

Nice Springfield. The old calibers are getting expensive to buy ammo for.

I have a couple of Stevens .22 guns. One is a break action derringer I posted about before and I also have a Little Scout 14 1/2. I guess the 14 is more desirable but it’s a nice garden gun that is drop block single shot.



I bought my dad a Henry Golden Boy American Farmer limited edition for his birthday last year. Not sure if you have a Henry rifle but the lever action is buttery smooth. Excellent workmanship and made in the USA

I have the base model Henry .22 rifle. And you're right, it is buttery smooth. That's my second favorite to take to the range and knock down the silhouettes. It also has the Marbles rear peep, and it's a fantastic shooter. Taking that and my Single Six to the range gives me my cowboy fix.

I feel bad that I don't own a Henry .22. Made in America and all that. They make such a variety of good looking lever actions. Maybe a bucket lid item.

The only .22 I have left to acquire is a pump action .22 rifle. Henry has a pump action, but it is a short stroke pump. I want a long stroke like the old shooting gallery .22 rifles.

Yes, the old 1890/1906/and model 62 Winchesters.  Beautys.  I sold mine and kept Remington model 12's.  Bad decision. But the model 12 is no slouch either, just does not have the allure of the Winchesters.  My favorite Winchester - the model 94/22.

Remington later offered the model 550-2G and 552-Gallery special as gallery guns but both were semi-autos.

CB, you may just be putting us on. Smile

My first .22, a Stevens model 11. Slightly less complicated.

It would take too much time to do so, so I would just like to say that there is a lot of very nice hardware amongst our little group here. I enjoy looking at all of it, especially the older stuff still around making its presence known. Thank you to all for sharing your hardware.

The title to that photo is "Tacifool", I keep my rifles clean of decorations and lite as possible. Accessory Rack is good!! lol!
My first rifle was given to me by Dad in early 60s. I still have the rifle and the owners manual.

BTW Fred I have been meaning to comment, you got a great deal on that 22/45.  Not one to walk away from even at twice the price.  Envy.....I don't have one.

But I did add two that should be here in a couple of days, a 50th Anniversary Mk-II and a NIB MK-IV.  Eager to handle that one.  Push button take-down with no frustration of the previous Marks.

Ha Bob...absolutely correct

I was just looking for primers... and did briefly fondle a New black MK IV and a Much newer 22/45 purple pistol....both nearing $600.... loved but not in budget

The one step take down is real trick and I was amazed due to my experience with the MK III and earlier methods

As I was wondered about, the counter guy pulled the used pistol out and asked if I might be interested for $199,,,I said I really had no plan to buy a pistol today but would you take $150...Immediate YES!

In conversation, while filing the NICS form out, he said he could not unload the thing with the newer and real pretty selection of MK IVs and 22/45s he had in the counter display

He laughed and also admitted he low balled the guy trading it just because it was a early hard to take down version... and told me the guy trading was doing so BECAUSE it was such a bear to open and he was a OCD gun cleaning nut

I think my first ever "Bought by me" rifle* and this new Ruger pistol are the very best gun buys I ever did

*1974 Sears n Roebuck Ted Williams Model 100 (Win 94) in 30-30 for $73.98

Now if I could find ne of y dream rilfes at a good price I think I would stop

Sako Fin-lite 22-250, synthetic, rubberized, stainless fluted barrel.. around 6 lbs and fits me like a glove... but I have so many good varmint rifles I can not justify $1500+

That's why it was known as the Visible Loader.  Model 70 etc.  I had every variation at one time.  

The incoming round was presented to the breech block from underneath slipping under the extractors in a very troublesome fashion.  A jammer extraordinaire, but I loved them.  Gone now with regret to collectors everywhere.

You have good taste in rifles Fred.  Sako is top flight as you know.  22/250 Remington 4000+ fps.

I had a 25th anniversary Remington model Seven in 7mm, it's bigger brother.  Scoped it and took it to the range to sight it in bench rested.  But, I neglected to buffer the rest with a towel or something soft and damaged the fore-stocks checkering.  The most angry I have ever been with myself.  Sold it the next day as I could no longer bear to look at it..  Beautiful accurate rifle.

Those slide action .22s are cool. I'd like to have one in the collection.

A very nice example TL.  No. 5 Enfield, barks like a big dog, kicks like a mule.  Many of the post war examples survive in good condition, most of the war examples do not.  Harsh jungle conditions took their toll and many were left behind to equip local police units after the war adding to their misery.  Truly a very desired collectable.  

I hate to sound like a broken record here, it becomes boring even to me, but I have a couple of those.  Heck, at one time I had enough Enfields to outfit a small army.  Most would be hard pressed to have any legal domestic or foreign war surplus rifle that I did not at one time or another own.  Remember that I have been a small arms collector longer than most here have been alive.   They were not set in a corner to rust away either, most were completely disassembled, researched and shot.

Be careful Fred what you wish for, I have thousands of photographs most of which would grow old here in a hurry. I love showing off my collection, but I have to be quite discrete in doing so. Doesn't matter much anyway, most to my profound regret are gone now. But I have retained a select few and keep the memories of the rest.

The photos that I do post are usually shortly deleted. They are not relevant to this forum and only interest a few.
